Airlines respond to tropical storm Harvey relief efforts

The air cargo industry is responding to tropical storm Harvey which has ripped through the Texas Gulf Coast with record rainfall, causing extensive flooding. Rapid response aviation charity Airlink, partnering with 35 airlines and 60 non-governmental relief organisations, said: “Airlink’s humanitarian partners from across the US are responding to the need for rescue, shelter, food, water, and medical care that is beyond the capacity of local resources.” Airlink is coordinating rapid air transportation “to get responders in place as quickly as the need is identified”.
